I'd heard about this during my preview with the game last month - MLB 2K10 cover athlete Evan Longoria asked for Tantric's "Down and Out" to be included on the game's official soundtrack, and 2K Sports obliged.


It's there with 15 other tracks 2K Sports announced today, including another I recognized in January, "Judas" by Cage the Elephant, which also provided the title song "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" for 2K Games' Borderlands.

Here's the MLB 2K10 track list:

• Black Crowes - "Go Faster"
• Black Keys - "Your Touch"
• Black Sheep - "The Choice is Yours"
• Boss Martians - "Hey Hey Yeah Yeah"
• Cage the Elephant - "Judas"
• Daughtry - "Every Time You Turn Around"
• Hotel St. George - "It's the Blues"
• Iggy Pop - "Lust for Life"
• Jet - "Start the Show"
• LCD Soundsystem - "Time to Get Away"
• Pearl Jam - "The Fixer"
• Phoenix - "Lisztomania"
• Ryan Adams - "Magick"
• Social Distortion - "Bad Luck"
• Tantric - "Down and Out"
• The Sugarhill Gang - "Rappers Delight"

In the interest of equal time, MLB 10 The Show announced its soundtrack at the end of January. Here are the 12 tracks you'll be getting in that game.

• Band of Skulls - "I Know What I Am"
• Baroness - "Swollen and Halo"
• The Grouch & Eligh - "All In (Feat. Gift of Gab & Pigeon John)"
• Night Horse - "Come Down Halo"
• Scarlet Symphony - "Your Blood Is Mine"
• Silversun Pickups - "It's Nice to Know You Work Alone"
• The Budos Band - "The Proposition"
• The Heavy - "How You Like Me Now (Beats Mix)"
• The New Regime - "Haunt My Mind"
• The Soundtrack of Our Lives - "Babel On"
• We Are Scientists - "Rules"
• Zodiac Death Valley - "Look Alive!"

Both games are out March 2. Holy crap, that's two weeks from yesterday.



Are the soundtracks really that important for sports games? While playing NBA 2K10, I usually just listen to my own music if I even think about it.
